As of late there has been outcry from feminists declaring that the GOP is waging a “War on Women.” The complaints range from somewhat valid to completely absurd, but I would like to address this proclamation from a different perspective unaffiliated
Cries from the left have declared that the GOP is waging a "War on Women." Alternately, the GOP claims the same of the other side. Are women's rights under attack? Can free contraception coverage provided by the state be considered part of women's ri

Obama saw to it that 'Dr.' Tiller's main political supporter, Governor Kathleen Sebelius. was duly rewarded with control over Health and Human Services! Obama knew what she was, and showed who he is, with his appointment of her. The money-trail and power-trail documented in pictures. This is who Obama really is. His 'church-going' morals on display!'Entered By: K. Liberty
Tiller performed 60,000 later term abortions. Then for additional revenue, he had the women take pictures with their dead fetus for a memorable family picture. Then he also offered a following baby funeral... wait... I thought it wasn't a baby. link text

A global women's rights treaty completed 30 years ago has a better-than-ever chance for U.S. Senate ratification this year, yet the hunt for the needed 67 favorable votes is likely to incur the wrath of activists on both the left and right.
Kudos have to be given to Alecia Moore, the lady otherwise known as Pink. Her new video "Stupid Girls" is exactly what art is for: taking the political, which is also often personal, and turning it on its head so that we can all see the t
Are we really all “children at heart”? Or, instead, are we all Disney progeny, merely comforted by a myriad of illusions about our youth? I challenge you, Reader, to think about this very carefully.
Ah, yes. It’s a “Jerry Maguire” classic phrase most of us can steal and use from time to time in life, especially when scammed. We want our due, and we don’t care how the offending party tries to get out of paying us our due (whether in letters of a
This week, I tackle the timely question of why there is a backlash against the feminist movement coming from younger women in our twenties and thirties. The answer seems obvious: we didn’t live through the feminist movement, and, therefore, we take
There is no neutral ground. Whether it happens at home or on the job, if you choose to take a neutral stance because you think that both your friends (or family members) can “sort it out themselves, like adults,” you are siding with the abusive pers
JILL PORTER, in her column "Be wary of anti-abortionist cloaked as feminist," calls abortion rights "the foundation of the feminist movement." Those who disagree, including me, would say that the foundation is women's suffr
Instead, in the nomination of Harriet Miers, President Bush has reminded us that gender is unreliable in predicting world view. It's not safe to assume anything about Miers. Because although she was a pioneer in her career, overcoming sexisEntered By: Rachel Gluck
And now - 100 years later - Nigella Lawson's laidback style hopes to guide the modern woman towards the pedestal of domestic goddess. Not without a hint of irony, those two recipe books feature next to each other in a collection of 200 items that
When my friend Anne and I had to cram for a calculus exam in high school, she brought a plate of warm cookies to our study session. Perhaps it was the melted chunks of chocolate, or perhaps it was my heightened appreciation for anything and everythin
There are ribbons for AIDS/HIV awareness, breast cancer, supporting our troops, and even our religions (yes, I have seen the red bracelets for Christians saying that Jesus is their savior). The most irksome thing about all this is that the most impo
Those who grew up in the dark days of the 1980s are truly a lost generation. Most of them are compulsively devout, but at the same time they are entirely devoid of any of the ethical underpinnings that religion is really all about. Unfortunately they
The Information Affairs Office of H.H. Sheikh Sultan Bin Zayed Al-Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister, has published a study entitled "Woman's Rights."
Twelve-year-old boys find me sexy, and they aren't afraid to let me know it. My fellow female lifeguards and I were constantly propositioned this summer by hordes of pre-pubescent punks. Despite their initial creepiness, I had to give the boys
In a recent class, our professor asked us who considered themselves a feminist. Very few men, if any, raised their hands. As a matter of fact, very few people in general raised their hands -- men or women. Feminism is mostly known by the public
